Jan 26, 2021

This is the ideal time to take the temperature of the 2021 marine industry sales environment. The first-ever Virtual Toronto International Boat Show has just wrapped up and the 2021 Virtual Vancouver International Boat Show is coming up February 24 to 27, 2021.

Dealers plan their advertising around these dates. Buyers plan to get a “boat show deal” on a new boat. And of course, we are only four months from the May 2-4 weekend again. People have been locked down, cooped up and frustrated for most of a year now and they want to get out and have some fun.

We ask our Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest readers to take just a moment to tell us where you are, what your business is and what you sales expectations are for the coming summer.

We will report the 2021 results with what we learned from the same survey questions we asked in May of 2020.

Just 8 questions…please respond to this survey as soon as possible:


Thank you!
